I am happiest when I have a trip ahead of me. Right now, I may actually have a few trips coming down the line. The next trip will be to Florida, a hosted trip, and you can come.
There may very well be others in 2014… Mexico, the Bahamas, maybe a few other places too. It is a lot to look forward to and that seems to put gas in my tank.
There is always something to learn or think about before your trip. For me, I usually tie a lot of flies before a trip, but I also need to tie up leaders, arrange any demo gear, and generally go over my stuff to make sure everything is in working order.
I don’t have a check list. Maybe I should, but I don’t. Every trip seems to have its own manifest depending on what the fishing is going to be. Wading trips are different from boat trips. Trips with shots at multiple species are different animals than straight bonefishing or straight trout trips.
I’m looking forward to the coming year and look forward to sharing the details and experiences with you fine people.
